I'd buy one, but fark Cleveland.

That's awesome.

It's fun but it's been done.

You can get the shirts online.  I toyed with the idea of buying one but a the message that I would want to send by wearing one might be, um, misconstrued.

I'd have reservations about wearing that short too.

I'd wear the Caucasians shirt, and I'm so white I need to wear sunglasses in the shower.

Oddly, I don't feel offended by a mascot.
 
2014-08-02 09:43:11 AM  
They should do a Washington Paleskins one.

But who better to lampoon the Indians mascot than a Cleveland shirt maker?
 
2014-08-02 10:11:16 AM  
I know the shirt is designed to make a point about racism and meaningful things.
But, I think it's quite funny, and I would like to purchase one.  Well, I'd like someone to give me one.

/quite white.

While out drinking last month I was wearing my Cleveland Indians hat. A guy in his 20's who was an American Indian drunkenly yells across the bar something like "Oh, I see you're wearing my Uncle on your hat."  My response was asking what part of Cleveland he's from. The guy then gave me a high five.
 
2014-08-02 10:45:06 AM  
I liked Gina's tittays.
 
2014-08-02 10:46:15 AM  
I'm as white as can be and find the shirt pretty damn funny. I want one, but I don't want to be associated with Cleveland.
 
2014-08-02 10:48:11 AM  
Now imagine if this wasn't a joke, and was part of a systematic effort by all of society to enshrine you as a sub-human

My grandpa on the res needs this. it's totally his sense of humor.

When will the Irish get their bowels in an uproar over Notre Dame's mascot?  Oh, right.  Never.

It's probably a hassle. I once wore a Ron Mexico costume and I ended up getting into 25 annoying conversations about illegal immigration.

I can't believe the Irish allow themselves to be associated with an overpriced, mediocre college in the worst part of Indiana. Even worse than Fort Wayne.

Wearing a shirt which boldy says caucasians! in any sort of way that could be seen as proud or celebratory of being caucasian  would get a white dude branded as a racist and as a person flaunting his unfair advantages from being caucasian. I daresay that such a shirt on a gringo would give suspiscions that the shirt wearer was a mkember of an aryan-esque hate group as well

I love the smell of faux outrage.

I would wear it, but I would be afraid some SJW would take it the wrong way.

Thanks for proving Redskins isn't offensive.

And they need to be singled out and ridiculed until they crawl back into their holes.

I'll buy six of those shirts.

Pay especially close attention, about 2:08. You may gain some insight into why you don't feel offended.

Let us know when there's an actual professional sports team called the Whiteskins.

Look into the New Zealand soccer team called the All Blacks.

for wearing black.  not for being black or having a black man as a mascot.  the red sox and reds aren't racist just because they include the word "red" in their name.  colors can be colors.

Maybe they should change it to the Washington Thinskins.

That's actually a good idea, they could keep all the stuff that says 'skins' on it and just change their primary colors to white with red being the secondary color.

Problem solved, that's some good work.

Also, the All Blacks play rugby.

Does anyone actually find this shirt offensive?  I find it mildly amusing, but mostly because it looks like the people who made these think people are offended by it.

/Really, the only thing it proves is an odd hypocrisy.
//If racism is wrong, why is it okay to use racism to your advantage?
 
2014-08-03 12:18:07 AM  
It's never really offensive to be called out part of the group with all the power.

It's like making fun of someone for being a Yankees fan - "Your team's won an average of 1 every 4 years for the entirety of its existence! You suck!"

Except if they'd won EVERY SINGLE YEAR.
